A tension-filled, intriguing story of obsession by award-winning writer Alan Gibbons.
This challenging story of social injustice, written for young adult audiences, features Imogene, 16, whose parents taught her to be kind to those who need help, but forgot to mention how she also needed to protect herself from the danger that could ensue. With a quiet, haunting style, Jerome Pride details a young girl’s interest in helping asylum seekers and how from the first blush of what should have been a lazy English summer, she finds herself on the path to a situation that could cost her life.
